PA House Approves $28.3-Billion GOP Budget



A $28.3-billion state budget plan shaped by Republicans who control Pennsylvania's House of Representatives is on its way to the Senate.
 
The House voted 108-92 Wednesday after nearly five hours of sharply partisan debate. Republican leaders said the package increases spending by more than a half-billion dollars, benefiting a wide array of programs without increasing taxes.
 
Altoona State Representative John McGinnis says the budget isn’t perfect – but its workable.
 

 
The Democratic minority contrasted a proposed $300-million-plus tax break for businesses with a $100 million boost in public school funding that critics say would fall far short of what many school districts need to overcome serious financial problems.
